Let’s face it, we’ve all thought of changing, removing or augmenting some part of our body. With the prevalence of cosmetic surgery, one feels more obliged to become part of this burgeoning trend. So, since the beauty standard has been heightening every year, here’s the cosmetic surgeries you may need if you consider voluntarily going under the knife, or needle.
Got a pot-belly, disportionate fat on one body part or just can’t have your weight cut enough on a body part? Then liposuction can help. Liposuction is the removal of fat deposits by a traditional suction technique or via ultrasonic energy to aid fat removal. Alternatively, laser liposuction is also offered by some cosmetic surgeons to those who are eschewing from minor scars.
Via liposuction, body areas can be sculpted: the abdomen, waist, arms, thighs, face, neck, back, buttocks, hips, knees, and ankles. Contrary to belief, this procedure is not necessarily performed on people who are obese.
Breast Augmentation/ Reduction
Breast implants or “boob job” is the augmentation of the breasts by means of fat grafting, saline, or the insertion of silicone gel prosthetics. Implants are inserted behind the breast tissue or the chest muscle. Quintessentially, candidates include people who desire larger breasts, want to add symmetry to their body proportions, or who have experienced breast volume reduction due to weight loss or pregnancy.
Conversely, women overly large breasts that cause neck, shoulder, or back pain may benefit from breast reduction surgery. Also, men with excessive chest fat or gynecomastia can also benefit from breast reduction via liposuction.
Whether you’re male or female, botox is one of the most preponderant forms of cosmetic enhancement. Additionally, botox is used to stymie sweat glands. Via injections, the substance Botulinum toxin (botox) is injected under the skin of the face and neck. Botox treatment is minimally invasive. It’s considered a safe, effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox also used to treat various medical problems, including: overactive bladder, excessive underarm sweating, lower limb spasticity and chronic migraines.
Commonly known as ear surgery or ear pinning, otoplasty aims to fix prominent ears or reshape the ear, most often done by pinning . During otoplasty, a plastic surgeon can adjust the size, positioning, or shape of your ears.
The auricle of the ears comprises folds of cartilage that are covered in skin. It starts to develop before birth and continues developing in the years after you’re born. Otoplasty comprises three types of surgery: ear augmentation, ear pinning and ear reduction.
Also known as Brazilian butt lift, the enhancement of the buttocks using silicone implants or fat grafting where fat is transferred from other areas of the body. Butt implants are artificial devices surgically placed in the buttocks to create volume in one’s backside.
The procedure can make a person look curvier and more shapely and balance the figure for those who feel they are naturally top-heavy.
Known as a nose job, rhinoplasty is surgery to change the shape of your nose by modifying the bone/or cartilage. Quintessentially, people get rhinoplasty to repair their nose ensuing physical trauma, to correct breathing problems, resolve a birth defect, or when they’re malcontent with its appearance.
Rhinoplasty can change the size, angle, straighten the bridge, reshape the tip and narrow your nostrils. Though, if your rhinoplasty is being done to improve your appearance rather than your health, you should wait until your nasal bone is completely mature.
